A Winter Garden......

 I took a few moments this afternoon to appreciate some winter flowering plants in our garden .....

A Camelia that has been in flower for a couple of weeks now......

A lone white Azalea flower on a struggling plant. Love the little green centre.....

Snowdrops flowering amongst a bank of maidenhair ferns creating a nice woodland scene under some tall redwood trees......

Some bright pink Azaleas bordering a pathway....

Delicate purple flowers on a Hebe......

A sweet smelling violet.....

Pretty pink cyclamens...

Tiny pink flowers on a succulent.
Nothing like a walk in the garden to clear the head and inspire some creativity. What are you inspired by this week?

Oh my goodness, it is so hard to believe that it is a winter garden! In winter I have mounds of snow and just pray that my plants will come back in the spring! Thank you for linking up and sharing your pretty flowers!

Beautiful blooms! I can't believe you have so many flowers in winter. That camelia is to die for.
